Good old storyboard

I spent some of the weekend drawing a storyboard in preparation to shoot our first FANSO music video for the Boston band hallelujah the hills. My involvement in this project has been relatively minor, and it has been exciting to see how Liz and Luisa have taken active measures to make it happen. I has happy to help illustrate their chosen script with my rusty storyboarding skills — I hadn’t worked on a serious storyboard since 2005, when I did the storyboards for Babel. It feels good to get my hands on some pencil-based cinematic action again, even though all I want to do now is write and direct. A very good thing about how we have organized things in Fantastic Soup is that it offers us opportunities to pursue each of our most ambitious goals, while keeping us down to earth by requiring us to exercise all aspects of production.

The Making of: Fantastic Soup's 30-second Spot (Art Direction)
When we formed Fantastic Soup in late 2009, we decided to start making fun little spots to promote ourselves. The first of these was based on a script written by Max, wherein a can of Fantastic Soup sitting among a shelf of boring soup cans beckons to a shopper in a grocery store.

Max’s script essentially called for a grocery store and a can of Fantastic Soup which
stutters and shakes
on the shelf among all the other, less fantastic soup cans.

With the help of our very resourceful friend Daniel, we quickly ended up with access to a local grocery store and started scouting.
